OUTRAGE! – Google Sponsors Anti-Gay Kenyan Politician To Attend Its Web Rangers Conference In CA

Google has invited anti-gay activist and Kenyan government official Ezekiel Mutua to its Web Rangers conference in Mountain View, California, and is reportedly even sponsoring his passport and visa.

According to a report on abuses of LGBT people from the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA)  in Kenya sexual contact between consenting adults of the same sex is criminalized by four statutes, the most recent from 2003. Prison terms for breaking anti-gay laws can be set at  to years.

Mutua, who is the head of the Kenyan film classification board (KCFB), gained notoriety this year for banning from the country’s servers local band Art Attack’s cover of the Macklemore gay marriage anthem Same Love, saying it “promotes homosexuality” in Kenya, where homosexuality is illegal.

“Kenya must not allow people to become the Sodom and Gomorrah through psychological drive from such content,” said Mutua.

In 2014, Mutua banned Stories of Our Lives, a film about Kenya’s gay community, for “obscenity, explicit scenes of sexual activities and [for promoting] homosexuality, which is contrary to [Kenya’s] national norms and values”.

“Because of my stand on moral values, including the banning of content promoting LGBT and atheists culture in Kenya, someone wrote in a local daily that I will never get a visa to the US,” Mutua wrote in a post, now deleted, on his Facebook page.

Well, I not only got it but it came on a diplomatic passport and I didn’t even have to go to the embassy for biometrics or pay the visa application fee. It was delivered to my office free of charge thanks to our efficient ministry of foreign affairs and highly courteous US embassy officials. America here we come … TO GOD BE THE GLORY!”

Sources from inside Google say that there is much conflict happening in the company over Mutua’s invitation. With some trying to defend it suggesting that discussions about bullying, especially as it affects teens struggling with nascent sexual identities, could prove helpful. But Mutua’s reputation in Kenya makes that seem highly unlikely.

Loving Christian and FRC Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Lauds Trump's Budget Plan To Stop Feeding The Elderly

KKK-ristian Love – FRC’s Tony Perkins: Obama Should Let Other Countries Persecute Gays The Way They Want To

“From Hillary Clinton to John Kerry, the State Department has repeatedly violated the first rule of the diplomatic process: to respect the traditions and beliefs of other countries. In most cases, this forceful approach has made more enemies of nations than friends — especially in countries as profoundly religious as Kenya. Like other African and South American nations, they don’t appreciate the administration’s decision to openly demonize their beliefs and promote homosexuality and abortion as international ‘human rights.’ And when the President Obama visits Kenyans this month, they intend to tell him so. Dozens of lawmakers are planning protests during the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, where White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the President will once again call for ‘equality’ for LGBT Kenyans. In two terms, this administration has amassed one of the worst foreign policy records in modern history — promoting what our laws don’t recognize and falling silent on what they do (like religious freedom). For this White House, everything boils down to abortion and sexuality. In a world already teetering on disaster, this clash of worldviews is a diplomatic powder keg.” – Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Per-KKK-ins, via press release.

Dear Tony;

If we had any serious intention of infringing on your precious “religious freedom”, we would have cut your tongue and jammed it up your own ass where it belongs years ago.

Gay/Bisexual Men In Kenya Being Human Trafficked As Sex Workers To United Arab Emirates

Identity, a gay magazine in Kenya, is reprting that gay Kenyan men are being trafficked into the Gulf as sex slaves for the wealthy in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

According to the magazine, due to Kenya’s soaring unemployment rate gay and bisexual men are easily being lured from university campuses – particularly from Kenyatta University – with promises of high-paying jobs and then transported to labor as sex workers for men in the United Arab Emirates.

One victim was promised a job in Qatar but who ended up suffering humiliating and violent sadistic sexual abuse. He managed to escape but told the magazine that he had traveled to the Gulf state with five others and they were then separated at the airport.

Qatar specifically, has no laws against human trafficking, which has made cracking down on the practice nearly impossible.

Qatar is a transit and destination country for men and women subjected to trafficking in persons, specifically forced labor and, to a much lesser extent, forced prostitution,” the US State Department stated in a recent report.

Kenya does have anti-trafficking legislation but because homosexuality is illegal in both the Arab states as well as Kenya the men are unable to report abuse to police.
